Royalty payments for authors.

Halloween themed premade cover.

Finished "Ringworld" by Larry Niven. It's a classic, but it seems to spend way too much time on the scientific ideas and not enough on the plot. While I know it's a bit much to ask from an old book, it would have been better with less infodumping and more of the details being incorporated into the narrative.

Breeding apples. This was a lot more interesting than I had expected - the amount of work and time to develop a commercial strain, astonishing. Also didn't realise apple varieties are clones like bananas...

Ikea trip.

Went to see Kingsmen: the Golden Circle. I really like this series, can't help but thing this is what the old Bond movies should have been like.

Stranger Things finale and Halloween hangout.

Wallpaper designs for a client.

Also discovered a leaking pipe, realised a good part of the new flooring has been soaking in water from underneath, and then struggled to get the water turned off properly. I'm just about done with all this renovations crap.

Bedtime is for losers! ;) #dailyBaby
